Along with the disastrous downfall of a new media company, Jeremy Strong's performance as the downtrodden Kendall Roy takes "Vaulter" to the next level.
This episode proved that the pace is more breakneck than ever.
Matthew Macfadyen has some of his best Succession scenes yet this week, as Shiv's new husband embraces his new role at ATN, locking horns with the news division's feisty executive Cyd Peach [Jeannie Berlin].
With every new action he takes, [Jeremy] Strong somehow finds new ways to play a man who is completely and utterly devoid of whatever made him the person he was.
Vaulter proves what doing Logan's bidding can accomplish even when you're considered next to nothing in the scheme of things. Kendall's seated at the right hand again, and all it took was tossing away his soul and getting spit in the face.
[Vaulter's shuttering is a] devastating moment that gets at the precarity of modern media companies being owned by massive corporations with little interest in anything beyond bottom lines;
Placed on top of a continuing descent for Kendall, it's a strong episode that has everyone playing to their strengths, but finding that that may not be enough in the great competition.
Yes, Kendall killed a guy. Yet the most broken of the Roy children manages to pull at the viewers' heartstrings and make them feel something for his soullessness.
Succession is so good at making us feel for these characters while reminding us that they are, in fact, making decisions that affect the lives of countless others
If it wasn't clear that Kendall was broken, it certainly is now. It's truly awful watching him go through the motions of being alive.
My god, does the Roy family know how to bring a grenade to a knitting circle. I am just flabbergasted.
This episode was delightfully brutal on the media business front.
Honestly, too much happens in this week's episode after a slowish premiere which is why I could barely contain myself at my desk the first two times I watched it.
